What is up with inserting images in WordPress.com sites?
Inserting images used to be so easy with WordPress.com sites. Now it is a royal pain-in-the-ass. WTF happened, WP? For the first year… year-and-a-half… I have not had any problems at all, then I started seeing this crap earlier this year.
Here are the issues I have encountered:
1. Inserting left or right. If I am inserting a thumbnail size image, then inserting the thumbnail right or left works fine. But I don’t always want thumbnail size images. I often want images around the width of 300 px inserted and justified left or right. But if the image is not selected specifically as a thumbnail, it will not justify but rather, it will force the text to follow underneath the image rather than wrap around the image.
What I end up doing is using columns so that I can insert an image larger than a thumbnail and have the text wrap around the image.
2. The image size. Depending upon the browser, the image size will vary. Now what I have to do is adjust the size of the image to exactly what I want.
3. Sometimes it is both. Some browsers will show the thumbnail with text wrap just fine. Yet the other browsers maximize the image size and don’t do any word wrapping. The image below is a comparison of the same section of a previous post about my newest Toy, an ASUS laptop.
There are some other issues I have run across, but these two are definitely the most annoying. What’s up, WordPress?
Anyone else experiencing these same issue? Or is this a big ol’ conspiracy against me and WP is only messing with me site? If it’s not just me, does anyone have any fixes? Any explanations?
